Hmm - a Habs City - yes. Hockey? That can be debated considering the turnout for these games at the Bell Centre.
Two years ago when the medal round games were in Toronto - every Canadian medal round game was at or within a few hundred of capacity at the ACC. The gold medal game - that I was at - was not only a sellout - but an overflowing crowd with every corporate box full - standing room only with way more people than seats in many boxes.
The Bell Centre - a few hundred short of capacity for the Gold Medal game, 10,000 short of capacity for Canada's Quarter-final,and 7,000 short of capacity for Canada's semi-final and there were many crowds under 5,000 for the round robin games in Montreal.
In both World Juniors shared by Toronto and Montreal attendance was way better in Toronto than Montreal.
And in both cities - yes the prices were too high.
